Bio and Links
I live in central Florida in Brandon (just east of Tampa). I started doing genealogy just out of curiosity about 10 years ago. My mother gave me a genealogy project that my great aunts had started years earlier (before computers) and my hobby began. I am married and have 3 grown children and 3 grandchildren. Genealogy is my passion and I wish I had more time to spend doing it. I also enjoy helping others, hence my submissions to "find a grave". I like to walk cemeteries and photograph the stones. I have even drafted my husband into helping me, but I love the "alone" time. I know that when I run across something new that has been beyond my reach I am so excited. I hope by submitting headstones that I am able to help someone else find that little something they haven't been able to achieve. You may email me privately at donnamaines@yahoo.com if you prefer. Any photos I take are open for public use. You do not need to ask my permission. Happy hunting.

Yes that is me! I belong to the genealogy society and it was one of our projects to put all of the names of all the Hillsbourough County Cemeteries on Findagrave. I work night shift as a nurse, so in my down time, I can do Findagrave stuff. I try to go to the cemetery after work so I can do the photos from my Iphone at work. Terri (Chihuahua Lover)

Thank you from the bottom of my heart for these photos. My wife and I traveled to Florida last February to find JD's final resting place after getting the location from the cemetary only to be devestated when all we could find was his fathers grave. The earth next to his fathers site was disturbed with no grass or marker present. I don't know what happened but his memorial had obviously been removed for some reason. We have pictures of the site at that time. Unfortuately, I returned to Minnesota with only the feeling that I had tried to visit an old comrade in arms but was unable to complete what I had hoped to achieve.You have completed it for me. It is nice to know that people like yourself still exist. God bless you.

Thank you very much for taking the photos of the headstones and the area. I hope you don't mind if I use the same photos on Ancestry.com.

Donna,
Thank you for pointing out the date error on his site. I had transcribed it wrong in my database also...oops. It helps for others to catch my mistakes :).
Thanks for your help,
